    Free energy of the three-state τ2(tq)\tau_2(t_q) model as a product of elliptic functions

    Full text link
    {We show that the free energy of the three-state τ2(tq)\tau_2(t_q) model can be expressed as products of Jacobi elliptic functions, the arguments being those of an hyperelliptic parametrization of the associated chiral Potts model. This is the first application of such a parametrization to the NN-state chiral Potts free energy problem for N>2N > 2.Comment: 20 pages, 3 figure

    Some exact results for the three-layer Zamolodchikov model

    In this paper we continue the study of the three-layer Zamolodchikov model started in our previous works. We analyse numerically the solutions to the Bethe ansatz equations. We consider two regimes I and II which differ by the signs of the spherical sides (a1,a2,a3)->(-a1,-a2,-a3). We accept the two-line hypothesis for the regime I and the one-line hypothesis for the regime II. In the thermodynamic limit we derive integral equations for distribution densities and solve them exactly. We calculate the partition function for the three-layer Zamolodchikov model and check a compatibility of this result with the functional relations. We also do some numerical checkings of our results.Comment: LaTeX, 27 pages, 9 figure

    Algebraic reduction of the Ising model

    Full text link
    We consider the Ising model on a cylindrical lattice of L columns, with fixed-spin boundary conditions on the top and bottom rows. The spontaneous magnetization can be written in terms of partition functions on this lattice. We show how we can use the Clifford algebra of Kaufman to write these partition functions in terms of L by L determinants, and then further reduce them to m by m determinants, where m is approximately L/2. In this form the results can be compared with those of the Ising case of the superintegrable chiral Potts model. They point to a way of calculating the spontaneous magnetization of that more general model algebraically.Comment: 25 pages, one figure, last reference completed. Various typos fixed.

    The challenge of the chiral Potts model

    Full text link
    The chiral Potts model continues to pose particular challenges in statistical mechanics: it is ``exactly solvable'' in the sense that it satisfies the Yang-Baxter relation, but actually obtaining the solution is not easy. Its free energy was calculated in 1988 and the order parameter was conjectured in full generality a year later. However, a derivation of that conjecture had to wait until 2005. Here we discuss that derivation.Comment: 22 pages, 3 figures, 29 reference

    Derivation of the order parameter of the chiral Potts model

    Full text link
    We derive the order parameter of the chiral Potts model, using the method of Jimbo et al. The result agrees with previous conjectures.Comment: Version 2 submitted 21 Feb 2005. It has 7 pages, 2 figures. The introduction has been expanded and a significant typographical error in eqn 23 has been correcte

    The Large N Limits of the Chiral Potts Model

    Full text link
    In this paper we study the large-N limits of the integrable N-state chiral Potts model. Three chiral solutions of the star-triangle equations are derived, with states taken from all integers, or from a finite or infinite real interval. These solutions are expected to be chiral-field lattice deformations of parafermionic conformal field theories. A new two-sided hypergeometric identity is derived as a corollary.Comment: 41 pages, 3 figures, LaTeX 2E file, using elsart.cls and psbox.tex (version 1.31 provided), [email protected]

    The order parameter of the chiral Potts model

    Full text link
    An outstanding problem in statistical mechanics is the order parameter of the chiral Potts model. An elegant conjecture for this was made in 1983. It has since been successfully tested against series expansions, but as far as the author is aware there is as yet no proof of the conjecture. Here we show that if one makes a certain analyticity assumption similar to that used to derive the free energy, then one can indeed verify the conjecture. The method is based on the ``broken rapidity line'' approach pioneered by Jimbo, Miwa and Nakayashiki.Comment: 29 pages, 7 figures. Citations made more explicit and some typos correcte

    Corner transfer matrices in statistical mechanics

    Full text link
    Corner transfer matrices are a useful tool in the statistical mechanics of simple two-dimensinal models. They can be very effective way of obtaining series expansions of unsolved models, and of calculating the order parameters of solved ones. Here we review these features and discuss the reason why the method fails to give the order parameter of the chiral Potts model.Comment: 18 pages, 4 figures, for Proceedings of Conference on Symmetries and Integrability of Difference Equations.

    Planar lattice gases with nearest-neighbour exclusion

    Full text link
    We discuss the hard-hexagon and hard-square problems, as well as the corresponding problem on the honeycomb lattice. The case when the activity is unity is of interest to combinatorialists, being the problem of counting binary matrices with no two adjacent 1's. For this case we use the powerful corner transfer matrix method to numerically evaluate the partition function per site, density and some near-neighbour correlations to high accuracy. In particular for the square lattice we obtain the partition function per site to 43 decimal places.Comment: 16 pages, 2 built-in Latex figures, 4 table
